I have been finding formulae at various math tutorial websites and

Surely there is no need to "wash" anything if you paste as Unformatted text?
My goal, in part, is to model a formula of interest within Calc,
e.g., a^2 = b^2 + c^2 - 2bc Cos A; this is one way that allows me to
learn how to manipulate Calc's functions. So, I used Writer's
superscript button and then pasting the formula into my Calc file,
as a text string, of course.
A perfect task for tables in a text (Writer) document, not a
spreadsheet. Time taken to learn the basics of tables in a text
document: three minutes? Oh, and even easier: if you copy the range
of cells you currently have in a spreadsheet and paste that into a
text document, choosing possibly HTML or "Formatted text" in
the Paste Special dialogue, a table will be created for you.
Note that text tables are worth knowing about: they are frequently
useful for formatting material in a text document that doesn't
immediately appear to be tabular.
I trust this helps.
